    Default Hi! Just got home from an orchid nursery!

    Going by the plan I wrote about couple of days ago (WELL...ALMOST...by the plan) today I went to the greenhouse in S. Miami. My first visit to a big orchid nursery ever. WOW... I went only to look around and buy ONE flask and MAY BE one orchid in bloom. It was not an easy choice... So I got home with a few more things than expected... One that I am very excited about is Onc. Papilio (not in bloom yet, but will be soon). The other one is in bloom, but while I was trying to pull the tag it broke and on top of that I don't see the name. I will post a picture of it later as now I have to go shopping for some unexpected babies... Have 4 flasks now and never done deflasking before. Will keep posting.

    Wow, that is a bunch of orchids. Can't wait to see the papilio. They last forever when in bloom.

    cheers,

    Girl, you're putting me to shame. I'm glad you had a successful expedition. And sorry about the mixup on the Redlands dates. Then again, maybe we'll be able to go. LOL

    The lady at the nursery told me that all I need to do is just to take off the agar and spread the babies in the tray. She also told me that they are used to being outside. I will keep them in the house for a few weeks just in case. I made a bath reading a thread posted by Bruce a few years ago and followed through, but I am still not sure if all I did was correct. That is why I only did one flask. I put them in sphagnum moss because I read somewhere about several weeks ago, that this is like antibiotic for them. This is my first try and I can keep you update of what is going on.
